Atmosphere

8 years ago, this was a tropical paradise, now it is a bit wacked. Lots of potential for getting hurt. The area is mind bogglingly beautiful.

strange place - we visited this town in 1994 and back then it was full of potheads, tweakers and drunks - mostly young white pastfari dropout wannnabees subsidized by mom and dad, but we saw weapons and there was a lot of petty theft. the place was dirty and basically a shithole. i dont care how good the wave is, who needs the crap (literally) on land. has the town gotten any better? back then it was the pits.
